Anyone Looking For Cunningham And Swales In Yorks?
« on: Friday 18 April 08 16:35 BST (UK) »
My Gt Gt Grandad Thomas Rhodes  married a Jane Cunningham b.cir 1854 York married 1871 Hull.

Cant find her. Have found a travelling family tinmen/dealers/hawkers  repeatedly married into the Swales Family which married into the Rhodes a generation earlier.

Looking for anyone with connections to Benjjamin Cunningham, Magdalena Cunningham married Thomas Swales and his sister Mary Swales married Richard Cunningham. Thomas and Mary Swales hailed from Kirkby Moorside Yorks, the children of James Swales and Esther Sowdon. Other children included Jeremiah who married Elizabeth Cunningham Wilson, and Hannibal who married Prudence.

Christiana Swales married Thomas Rhodes Snr.

If they did Im not aware of it, but they came from Kirkby Moorside, Yorkshire.
James Swales married an Esther Sowden, and had several children there.

Have you seen the 1851 census entry at HO107/2349 Fol 31 p26? This family were all born in Yorks, but had moved to Lincs. The daughter Mary Ann m an Elliott in Sheffield, so could your Jane be one of this family?
The father William is a Dealer in pots
Elliott Drury Mills Harwood/Haywood Smith Bailey Lincs/Notts/Leics

Have not found a Margaret Swales - have found a Magdalena though.

This family married into Cunninghams and Wilsons, and later the Rhodes.

They appear to come from Kirkby Moorside in Yks.
